New Hampshire on My Mind
'This album just says it all about New Hampshire' reported Brian of Concord, upon hearing it. These fourteen original songs each tell a story about the people, places and events that constitute the Granite State, from the infamous Grace Metalious to the shenanigans of the State Legislature, with stops along the way at the Dump, the town of Henniker (it's the only one on earth, you know!) and in the sugar house. There are songs about Flatlanders, the tourists who are such a vital part of the state's economy as well as a song about the Black Flies that plague everyone in the Springtime., all sung in Jim's rich baritone. 'His voice is almost magical,' says Linda of Alton, 'When he sings he just takes you away with him.'
